Variety store Hub, set up by Poundland co-founder Dave Dodd, has implemented an EPoS system that will support its expansion.
The web-based system, created by ecommerce supplier Cybertill, will launch in all stores to provide Hub with real-time data, including sales and stock information.
Dodd said that the scalability of the system suited Hub’s expansion plans. He said: “This system means that we are not constrained by hardware or infrastructure when we expand.”
Dodd added that as a large format variety store, instant access to sales and stock information would ensure accurate stock fulfilment.
Access to real-time data also gives Hub the flexibility to tailor promotions in-store, according to Dodd, who added: “Using Cybertill’s system, we can tailor promotions quickly to a particular time-slot and possibly different promotions for each store.”
Hub promises “variety, quality and value in a contemporary environment” and aims to plug the variety store gap left by Woolworths.
